    Hey all!
    My latest commissioned piece. PYRO as seen in Last Stand of the Wreckers.
    When I say Heavy/Scratch, I mean JUST THAT.
    The commissioner just wanted a straight up repaint of the Combiner Wars Hot Spot but me being a jerk and a total showoff, this is what he got instead.
    Using the Hot Spot base I completely rebuilt him from the ground up. He is about 80% styrene at this point. The head is a Classics Ironhide with tons of styrene added. Weapons are gathered from G1 Soundwave, HFTD Seaspray, Classics Octane, Titans Return Sentinal Prime and various model kit bits.

    That is an amazing and interesting use of the CW Hotspot mold.

    Spoon, man....
    I've seen you grow over the years and sometimes thought you had some odd customs and/or sloppy work at times.
    Now I remember, we all grow and learn and eventually comes that moment when a person comes into their own.
    I want to sincerely apologize for the down thoughts. You have really hit this one out of the park and have made me think "Man, wish I'd have thought of that...."
    Well done buddy, well done.

    This is some beautiful work!

    The amount of details on the alt mode are just-right, making this look like a legit Hasbro release.

    And the smooth lines in bot mode totally capture the style of The Last Stand of The Wreckers comic art.

    Really well done!

    I'm the commissioner.

    I paid him extra. (A little. Would have paid more if I could.)

    Not because he said anything about it, but because this is f***ing amazing work.

    Well, I think you've definitely hit the jackpot as far as commissions go. Seriously. The redone vehicle mode alone is gorgeous, not to mention the bot mode. What kind of figures you displaying this fella with?
